This is the laundry/utility room. It used to be a back porch area. The washer and dryer are both used but very good quality.
I'm standing on the "outside" (they are enclosed, but common area) steps to try and get the whole room here. The laundry room is 8ft6in X 6ft6in.
This is the fridge. It's in what used to be the pantry; behind it is the central heat. It's a smallish fridge, but workable.
This is looking into the first (smallest) bedroom, off the kitchen. It's 9.5ftX9ft. It has a small closet. The radiator is for hot water heat, not steam, and is back up in case the central heat goes out. We'll probably put our computers in here.
This is the bathroom sink; it's new. I forgot to get measurements for the bathroom.
Nesko put these shelves in. If we can pull out the radiator, we can put in a little closet with more shelves and a door.
This is the bath tub. The tile is new, installed about a year ago, maybe less. The floor is the same; it looks really nice.
This is built in to the wall in the hallway. I'm standing in the bathroom, looking out. I would like to strip the paint off and refinish the wood, but I doubt we'll do that before we move in.
This is the kitchen. The flooring (vinyl stick tiles), cabinets, counters, sink, etc were installed about a year ago. The water damage is on the right hand counter. The kitchen measures 9ftX8ft.
These cabinets are solid oak, not veneer.
The cabinets are solid oak. Nesko is going to fix the broken drawer on the left. You can't see the water damage to the counter top here. The dish washer is old, but works.
This is just to show the woodwork/molding. Nesko says it's not worth stripping/refinishing the molding, as it's "wood and wood components and things that were once wood." Some of it may be plaster, also.
There is no molding near the kitchen ceiling. We'll add some. I also want to scrape the paint off the transom above the door eventually.
This is the second bedroom, off the dining room. It is 8ft9inX11foot. It has a small closet; all the bedrooms have small closets. This will probably be Niko's room.
This is the dining room, 15ftX12ft5in-ish. It's got the bowed out area. It also has that tall bit of molding... picture rail maybe?... that is simply lovely. Our table will fit very well in here, and I want to ultimately get a buffet or sideboard as well.
I'm standing in the second bedroom to take this photo of the dining room. It's as large as some living rooms I've seen.
This is looking into the second bedroom. You can see the dining room's moldings as well.
Closet in the second bedroom. I want to paint the inside of the closets a bright, surprising color.
what is this i don't even. I am a TERRIBLE photographer. Anyway, there's a bit of the ceiling that's lowered, almost like a beam, where the heating ducts are. We want to put fans in the bedrooms and will have to have them on poles so they don't hit the beam thing.
The radiators are really pretty... and take up a lot of space, sadly. Note the two pipes: that's because they're hot water and not steam.
This is the front door. We're going to replace the glass (with something inexpensive at first), and I want to refinish the wood. That is not a priority, however. It's painted white on the inside; I'd ultimately like to strip that and refinish both sides of the door.
These are the front stairs. I should have taken a photo of the tile at the entryway, but I wasn't thinking. The bottom half of the wall is tin, I'm pretty sure. We're going to repaint, and I want to replace the carpet, but the carpet isn't pressing. I wonder what conditions the wood of the stairs is in, under that carpet...
Another view of the tin(?) tiles. They've been damaged numerous times (maybe they aren't tin?) and patched with plaster/spackle. We want to fix that up as best we can, but it's not a pressing concern. Painting above it, however, is.
This newel post is very pretty. It's pretty standard, yeah, but I like it. :)
This is the third bedroom, 8ft9inX11ft; the same size as the second bedroom. This is where Nesko and I will sleep. I hope it is large enough for a full size bed and 2 dressers, but am not sure. I'm glad we never did upgrade to a larger bed.
I don't know what this weird jogging out of the wall is; that will be slightly tricky to work around. There's a bunch of outlets missing covers. What's up with that?
The closet in the 3rd bedroom. I did not measure the closets because neither Nesko nor I wanted to enter the closets and touch the walls. There are many roaches in this apartment. Note the cable in the left corner: every single room (including the dining room) was wired for cable.
Ahhh, the fireplace! This is half of the living room, with the sunroom to the right. The fireplace used to be functional, but previous owners blocked it off. The brick is plastic facade, over real brick. Some of that dark brown paint is covering limestone. We are going to replace the hanging light fixture with a ceiling fan; I don't know if we'll keep the mirror there or move it into Niko's room. The living room is 12foot wide by 20.5foot long.
This is the living room, looking into the sunroom. Nesko says he will build a bench seat that goes the length of those windows, to cover the radiator and provide more seating. The sunroom is 12ft long by 7ft4in wide.
This is the other half of the living room. Nesko's sister says it gets incredibly sunny in here, which will be nice but will cause glare on the tv, so we'll probably get heavy curtains for the windows on the left and put the tv and some media shelving on the wall with the small windows, with the couch in front of it. Which means the couch will have its back to the fireplace; the fireplace will have its own dedicated seating area.
Someone covered real bricks with plastic brick veneer. We're going to pull that veneer off and try to clean the bricks off. If the bricks underneath are terrible then we will put a less shitty veneer up. I want to clean the paint off the brick and limestone as well. People! Stop painting brick and limestone! Assholes!
Looking into the sunroom. You can see some of the molding up near the ceiling, as well as the molding around the entry. It looks better in person; I don't know why my flash sucked so much.
One of the four square windows, and some molding. I would like to strip the window casings and refinish the wood, but that is not a priority.
There's two windows on each side wall of the sunroom. It is aptly named.
The sunroom has 3 bright windows looking out over the front yard and street, for a total of 7 windows.
The radiator in the sunroom. Nesko claims he will cover it with a bench he builds. I would rather pull the radiators out, but they are heeeeaaaavvvyyyyyyyy.
Close up of molding in the sunroom. I think this is new molding; it might not be wood or plaster but something synthetic.
The living room. You can see down the hallway and into the kitchen. The front door is in the hallway, on the right side; the bedrooms are on the left and the bathroom and dining room are on the right. The hallway is 3.5 feet wide and 9 feet long.
Again, you can see the hallway. I want to replace the sconces (there's another one on the other side) and found some I like for less than $10.00 each. It's not super pressing, though.
